I think this is rather presumptuous. Hubris is defined as arrogance. It is pretty rare to confuse the two. Even though the the 2nd definition of self-esteem is self-conceit, with a defintion close to that of hubris, in my experience it never the intended meaning. I think a major "difference" which would have made this distinction quite clear is that hubris is usually directed at a single facet of one's abilities, and I did speak quite clearly of programming. Self-esteem is a more general quality.
